One week from today!!  Just one week!!  The rally will begin one week from today.  We have a few folks pulling in on Thursday and some staggering through the weekend.  We have a few folks coming in their cars just to check us out.  Any of you that haven't committed to being here can still plan on showing up.  We don't care if you have or bring your bus, we just want you to be here.  On Thursday and Friday you are own with food but on Sat we will have (hopefully) homemade doughnuts and will have lunch and dinner. Anyone wanting to contribute to the fixings for dinner is welcome.   On Sunday morning anyone that wants to is welcome to ride to the restaurant Bryce has been bragging about.  The home of the "throwed rolls".  Yummy food and also a fun place to eat. 

Also, Bryce has posted that there is a bus going to the casino's on Friday.  The bus will leave here no later than 9 AM on Friday and will leave the casino area sometime around 6 PM.  He will post more about that on his other post.  Anyone wanting to go gamble, shop or just wander around the home of superman is welcome to take that trip.

 If you plan on arriving here some time on Friday there will be someone here all day to help you get parked and make you feel welcome. If you bring a toad there is....ta da....a couple of Wal-Mart's nearby.  We don't have any special shopping plans but can always see that you can find, or be driven to, a store.   

The pit is going to be available and lots and lots of advice from all the other butnuts will be totally free. 

Looking forward to seeing you folks that are coming and disappointed that every single one of you can't be here.  Especially since Dallas and Bryce have promised to TRY to be on good behavior.  (good luck on that one).  Cat

Don't count us totally out yet Cat.  Uncles Ned has offered to come to Franklin and tow this poor old decrepit MC5 over there as a toad....and even bring Miss Jackie.  Hmmm.  I might take him up on that and
stow away in one of the bays...

Nah, that foxy devil would search me out and there'd go another good scheme.

Right Bob..  What Ned offered to do was to come by and take Jackie with him and you are trying to sneak away with them.  I know how it is.   Cat

Cat,

Good to see there's another silver-tounged devil to keep Bob in check.

If I had a nickel for everytime I heard "Bob is so nice,sweet", I need a Malox... Grin

Have a great time at your rally, I know its going to be FUN!

Dallas, Cat, BK,

I'm sorry to miss another of your wonderful Rallies.  Somehow, somewhere, I will make it to one! I promise..

You can bet on us dropping in on you guy's again sometime this winter.

Folks, if you are able to go to their Rally, by all means, do so. You will meet some of the most kind hearted bus friends anywhere....

I wish you guy's great weather, great food, great memories, and lots of new friends!

Enjoy!

Nick, we hate you aren't going to be here with us.  We would love to be able to see you sometime this winter but aren't sure we are quite in your route to FL these days.  We are really excited about this rally and the opportunity to meet more "nuts".  Haven't met a single one that wasn't a super person and don't think we ever will.

Unfortuanately, we will not be able to make this rally.  We have spent time with Dallas & Cat at a couple rallies plus visiting with them at there place on a couple occasions.  You will never meet anyone nicer than these two.  We have not had the opportunity to meet BK yet, but  hope to at some point.  I am sure this will be a great rally.  Jack

Cat, don't let Dallas see this, I wouldn't want him to get a "big head"  LOL

Sorry Jack, Dallas already saw it.  I know because he can't get back in the bus...his head has gotten too large.  BK is very nice and a very thoughtful guy.  He is tops as far as we are concerned.  (Hope he doesn't see this).  Cat

I hope you guys have LOTS OF FUN at your Rally. I am sure there will be lots of lie swapping! Wink

Maybe next year we could plan the rally's so they aren't so close together. We will have to touch bases and co-ordinate the dates so there is a large gap inbetween. Then maybe folks can go to both!

Take lots of pictures and enjoy, enjoy and enjoy!

At least you didn't have to move your location like we did, what a pain in the you know what!

Happy Trails,

Paul

4880 Claude Tucker Rd = Shop
4882     "         "      "  = Landlords trailer
4884     "         "      "  = BK's house
All 3 on same property and use the same driveway!

If coming up Hwy 22 CROSS OVER US 51, BUT DO NOT FOLLOW 22 & 51 (like Dallas)! [/u] Stay straight on up little 2 lane (N. Section Line Rd.) ! Turn right on 2nd road on right (it'll be 2 miles after CROSSING US 51!) That is Claude Tucker Rd! go up a little hill and round the right hand curve and we'll be the 5th driveway on the left! Long gravel drive as we are sitting way back off the road in an over grown field!

Now if anyone wants directions from KY or farther North! Interstate users! take Purchase Parkway south to Fulton, KY. PPkWy ends at TN state line take a right on US 51 ramp! Then almost immediately take a right on Ken-Tenn HWY's ramp. Right at stop sign on KN-TN HWY 4.5 miles (Watch for Ken-Ten Video ya can't miss it! It's a PINK A FRAME on the left) when ya see the video store , start slowing down Claude Tucker Rd. will be the next rd. to the right (angles off the hwy) follow Claude Tucker Rd. across US 51 and around a few bends watching to the right you'll see us before you get to the driveway! It'll be on the right, when ya see the Blue Bird Hill sign turn right in the second gravel driveway (there are 2 grave drives parallel to each other!)
OK now if ya want the scenic rte from KY use US 45 south instead of the PPkWy! Then follow the directions above for KN-TN HWY (use 45 W)!

All this clear as mudd? Any questions let us know! Grin  BK  Grin

Ned, and everyone else that needs directions....

Here is the Google map from US Hwy 45 to 4884 Claude Tucker Road, Union City, TN. 38261

I really, really wish I could make it this year, but I need to work on my bus this next weekend to get it ready for my trip in a few weeks.  Still got electrical to do as well as get the engine back together.

I was going to put my radiator back together today, but I decided to take BK's suggestion and replace more of the hoses and use the PowerGrip SB clamps which I won't be able to get until Tuesday or Wednesday.  I'm probably going to pull the turbo and take it to get looked at tomorrow too.
